Ahoy There, Matey!

Wednesdays are always multi post days for me, so here's the one for our latest and greatest challenge over at the Fresh Brewed Blog. Today is National Talk Like a Pirate Day, so let's see those piratey creations. I used the Fresh Brewed Designs digital image Baby Elvis the Pirate. I haven't created with any of the elephants in quite some time, so this was fun!! I found this scrap of designer paper in my bin which could not be more perfect, with all its pirate lingo on. The sentiment is an Amuse rubber stamp, and how wonderful to find this skull and crossbones brad in my stash!!!

Now being a pirate can be dangerous. Being out on the high seas, fighting for your loot. Well, I want to show you a picture of Baby Elvis's twin brother who met his maker the other day. Now this is not for the faint of heart, so be warned matey...

 Poor Baby Elephant Pirate, he did not survive this accident, and was buried at sea.

Okay, okay, so I may be exaggerating the story a little bit, but my freshly refilled Copic marker did me wrong the other day when I was almost done coloring this image. This must be why I never try to work to get ahead of the game, because accidents like this happen which always put me behind!!!! I simply had to share.

LOL! you're soooo funny!!! and at least it could be laughed about. it's so frustrating when an image gets ruined (for me anyway), esp. when i'm almost done with it. CUTE CUTE card!! :)
